Tom Sachs "American Handmade Paintings" @ Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 28, 2014
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to announce Jux favorite Tom Sachs’s seventh solo exhibition in the Marais gallery titled, American Handmade Paintings. The choice of this title is anchored in specific aspects that are dear to Sachs’s creative universe; his use of the American landscape as iconography and his endeavor to draw our attention to the way the works are made.

Custom "Vanity" by Tom Sachs for Krink

Graffiti // Sunday, January 12, 2014
Some of the most vain characters you will ever meet are graffiti writers, so we found this “Vanity” piece to be clever beyond just construction.  When Krink teamed up with New York-based artist, Tom Sachs to create a special edition marker set, Sachs surprised Krink creating “Vanity.” 

Tom Sachs for VistaJet Flight Safety Video

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 15, 2013
I flew on Virgin America on Monday, and their airplane/flight safety video is one of the better ones in the industry if you think a bit of irony and humor is good with your "danger, your seat can't float ,you will drown" scenario you face with while they serve you white wine and diet coke on your way to San Francisco. Tom Sachs, one of the more innovative and interesting big wig artists of the moment, created a safety video for luxury private jet company, VistaJet. Who says stop-motion and Barbie doesn't equate to feeling safe?

Tom Sachs: Love Letter To Plywood

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 18, 2012
Here at Juxtapoz HQ we were incredibley sad that were not able to make the opening of Tom Sachs' newest exhibtion Space Program: Mars. Watching some of these videos that Sachs' released in coordination with the show like, How to Sweep and the newest one we came across Love Letter to Plywood is only making it worse.

Tom Sachs "SPACE PROGRAM: MARS" @ Park Avenue Armory, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Tom Sachs' newest exhibition at first glance might seem like a glorified space camp that someone is trying to call art, but understanding Sachs' style and mentality we realized that this is in an incredible exhibition not to be missed. Sachs' will be occupying the 55,000 square foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall creating an immersive installation that is reminiscent of the Apollo Program but will be focused around Mars.

How to Sweep By Tom Sachs (plus Tom Sachs x Nike Craft "Mars Yard Shoe")

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 14, 2012
Leading contemporary artist Tom Sachs has always had a fascination with space and space travel. We just didn't know he was going to create, with Nike, a Mars Yard Shoe, or an entire line of Nike gear to be worn when you are planning a trip to Mars. Just planning, not going. As Sachs notes on his site, "These shoes are built to support the bodies of the strongest minds in the aerospace industry." While they plan things.

To be honest, its a slow day, our sister publication Thrasher has their big Skate of the Year party tonight, so we are listening to Surfer Blood and watching this really great video by Tom Sachs, Color. We suggest that on Friday so close to the holidays, you take 28 minutes to watch the comprehensive color code for Tom Sachs Studio.
